Dutch Crunch Bread. And it hails from San Francisco of all places.
This was really a fun challenge because we could use any bread recipe we wanted as long as we tried the topping recipe that turns any bread into a crunchy gorgeous masterpiece. Then, we were asked to use our bread to make a yummy sandwich.
I made sandwich buns with the delicious Soft White Roll recipe provided by our hosts, Sara and Erica. The roll recipe was sublime. The topping recipe was easy. It required A LOT of yeast and had a strong flavor, I think, in the end product. But the rolls looked exotic, kind of like giraffes or tigers.
Since I had six buns (and the only sandwich my kids willingly eat is burgers), I made burgers with plain old cheese, ketchup and mustard. Not too creative. Not too colorful. But at least consumed by my kids.
Thanks, Daring Kitchen, for a fun challenge and for introducing me to something new!
